The Universal Smart Energy Framework (USEF) is an international common standard that ensures smart energy technologies and projects are connectable at lowest cost. Its component parts enable the commoditisation and market trading of flexible energy use and specify all stakeholder roles (new and existing), how they interact and how they can benefit by doing so.
USEF describes the market for flexibility, offering the Framework description, with specifications, designs and implementation guidelines. With our reference implementation (‘Framework-implemented’) and the knowledge from pilots, we support users with insights, structure and exemplary coding.
USEF accelerates the commercial deployment of smart energy solutions. Adopting USEF increases the relevance and impact of products and pilots. By building on one common standard and exchanging insights, implementations accelerate, future connectability is assured and solutions are rapidly scalable. More info: www.usef.eu
